Two Half Hitches
Two half hitches are commonly used to tie a line to a post or dock eye.
This knot will slide, resulting in a tight grip on the post. The knot can
slip apart under high stress loads so it should NOT be used for "mission-critical"
things like tieing a rode to an anchor.
||To tie two half hitches:
- After coming around the post, make an underhand loop (the loop goes
under the standing part - attached or long end of the line.)
- Bring the bitter end (free end) up over the standing part and through
the eye which you created.
- Next make a second underhand loop around the standing part, and run
the bitter end through this eye.
- Tighten it up.
